I just finished level 1 of my 3 level anatomy curriculum: Little Otter’s Anatomy Curriculum.
This is a gentle, literature approach to science with simple experiments and activities.
This curriculum is designed for preschool through about 2nd grade or for older children with special needs who would benefit from books that are more “gentle” and are scheduled at a slower pace. You can also substitute some of the books for a younger student who is using Guest Hollow’s Jr. Anatomy Curriculum. Just choose from the two programs to get the best fit.
Topics for this curriculum:
- All about the human body
- How some animal parts are different than human parts
- Nutrition & Food
- Germs and Getting Sick
- Going to the Doctor
- Where babies come from (age appropriate)
- Smoking is bad for you
- Keeping safe from inappropriate touch
- Stories & videos about famous people and animals, like Fanny Crosby, Louis Pasteur, Helen Keller, Buddy – the first seeing eye dog, and Balto who delivered medicine to children in Alaska
I’ve scheduled in a variety of fascinating books and resources to make this human body curriculum informative, interesting and fun! I’ve also included several items to enhance this year’s studies that incorporate art and imaginative play.

I’m getting ready to work on updating /revamping the next curriculum. It’s been a lot of work converting my site over to a business (instead of a hobby), but well worth the effort. Thanks to all of you who are helping make Guest Hollow a success!
